They may not hold the lofty defending champion title that the St. Louis Cardinals do, but nobody’s forgotten that the Philadelphia Phillies and San Francisco Giants have taken turns of their own atop the MLB betting line recently. This Monday the two will embark upon a three-game set at AT&T Park.
Though their early season records might indicate otherwise, the Phillies and Giants are two of the National League’s teams to beat, the former leading the entire league on Bovada’s World Series futures list with 6/1 odds of winning the championship.
The Giants, who in 2010 last reigned supreme, have 20/1 odds on that same MLB betting line.
But before anybody gets too worked up about how the postseason might unfold, it’s crucial to get a handle on how the grueling regular season will play out. Can the Phillies keep up with burgeoning youngsters in Washington? Is it AL West title or bust for San Fran?
In the first of the three games this Monday expect aces Roy Halladay and Tim Lincecum on the mound setting an impressive pace for what promises to be an intriguing set. This morning's line at Bookmaker was almost a pick 'em with both squads at -105. Currently, the Phillies are tonight's favorite at (-127) the total for the game is set at 6 and is trending toward under. We see Halladay as a much bigger favorite as his ERA is under 1 this sseason and Lincecum has gotten shelled with the Giants losing both of his starts. however, the game turns out a Lincecum-Halladay matchup will be great to watch.
